Suspect in brutal Marion County murder arrested in BC

Telegraph Editor

A suspect in a gruesome Mar-
ion County murder case was
captured in Bradford County last
week during a late-night raid led
by Sheriff Gordon Smith.
A series of leads allowed
Marion County investigators to
track 18-year-old Michael Shane
Bargo Jr. to a residence at 9796
N.W. C.R. 225. On April 19,
off-duty Bradford deputies and
BUSTED unit members were
setting up surveillance of the
property around 11:30 p.m.
According to Bradford Coun-

ty Sheriff's Office Capt. Brad
Smith, as the residence was be-
ing monitored, a sniper team
reported a disturbance in the
backyard. Sheriff Smith ordered
officers into action, with more
than a dozen converging on the
Though he was found in the
backyard holding a large fishing
knife, Bargo surrendered without
a fight arid was taken into cus-
Capt. Smith said other individ-
uals at the residence were ques-
t. 'ed and released.
Bargo is one five people
charged with first-degree mur-

der in the slaying of 15-year-old
Seath Tyler Jackson in Marion
County. According to authori-
ties, Jackson was lured to a
residence, then beaten and shot
multiple times. His lifeless body
was placed in a sleeping bag and
burned, and the ashes hidden in
several.paint cans. The paint cans
were recovered form a water-
filled limerock pit.
Bargo was reportedly upset
that Jackson had allegedly hit
one of the other suspects arrest-
ed, 15-year-old Amber Wright,
who Bargo was recently dating.
Bargo, who has been fingered as
the mastermind and shooter, was

reportedly fueled by jealousy and
hatred of Jackson, Wright's for-
mer boyfriend.
Also charged in the murder are
Kyle Lonnie-Duan Hooper, 16,
Charlie Kay Ely, 18, and Justin
E. Soto, 20.
The stepfather of two of the
suspects, 37-year-old James
Young Havens III, was also ar-
rested, charged with helping dis-
pose of the body and evidence
and helping the suspects flee the
area. He was apparently respon-
sible for bringing Bargo to Brad-
ford County.
Jackson's parents notified au-
thorities April 18 that their sort

Michael Bargo Jr.

had been missing for a day. The
next day, Hooper's mother called
the Marion County Sheriff's Of-
fice and said her son had been
a witness to Jackson's murder.
Hooper provided details and
named the other suspects in-
Officials report that the mur-
der was premeditated, with the
girls used to lure Jacksonto Ely's
home in Summerfield.
Havens has posted bond, but
those charged with murder re-
main in jail or juvenile detention
in Marion County.
A funeral for Jackson was held
on April 23.




DOT targets $4.6M in UC projects

DOT cautions that
funding may not
be available 'for all
of the projects

Telegraph Staff Writer

The Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) is hoping
to spend more than $4.5 million
in road and road-related projects
in Union County over the next
few years, DOT's Jordan Green
told the Union County Commis-
sion on April 18.
State funding for the projects
may not come through, but if it
does, DOT is poised to move
forward on the county's current
five-yea; plan.
Each year, DOT approves a

five-year work program for each
county in the state. The plan de-
tails projects that the county and
DOT would like to see complet-
ed over the next five years. The
plan is tentative and there is no
guarantee funding will be avail-
able for the projects.
If a project is placed on the
five-year plan by the county or
state, it will be considered for
possible state funding. Projects
that are not on the five-year plan
will likely not be funded through
DOT at all.
Green asked county commis-
sioners to decide what projects
they would like to see added to
the county's future five-year
plan. Commissioners have until
May 15 to submit their priorities.
DOT will then process those pri-
orities and a new five-year plan
will be tentatively adopted July

1. New road priorities added to
the five-year plan now will prob-
ably not be eligible for possible
funding until 2017.
Current plan
Projects that have already
been requested and approved for
Union County-and are currently
on DOT's five-year plan-are:
The shoulders of the road
may be paved on Southwest C.R.
241 A (C.R. 791) from Southwest
67'h Street to Southwest C.R.
245. The project is just short of
one mile in length and, if funds
are available, DOT plans to com-
plete the engineering in 2012
($247.000) and begin construc-
tion in 2013 to the tune of S2.2
million. This project is aimed at
helping correct safety issues re-
lated to a narrow, winding rural

Widening and resurfacing is
planned for C.R. 240 from the
Columbia County line to Dicks
Road (which is the end of the
pavement). The project is ap-
proximately 3.4 miles in length.
Construction is planned to begin
in 2013 and will cost approxi-
mately $1.3 million.
A sidewalk may be built on
Southeast Fifth Avenue from
S.R. 100 near the Union County
Health Department to S.R.121
.near the Emergency Medical
Services building. It will run in
front of the Union County Public
Library. Engineering is planned
to take place in 2012 ($51,000)
and construction is planned to
begin in 2013 at an estimated
Cost of $445,000.

Ultralight plane

crashes in the

New River area

Telegraph Editor

A Jacksonville man died tragi-
cally in Bradford County some-
time over the weekend while pi-
loting an experimental aircraft.
The crash scene was discov-
ered on Sunday by the man's
wife, who drove to their Brad-
ford County property after be-
coming worried that she hadn't
heard from him.
Capt. Brad Smith said the
sheriff's office was notified of
the plane crash around 9 p.m. on
April 24. The crash occurred in
northwest Bradford County off
C.R. 225.

When law enforcement and
firefighters arrived, Smith said
they found a "yellow and orange
ultralight type of plane" crum-
pled on top of the pilot along the
edge of a tree line a couple of
hundred yards away from a grass
landing strip.
Smith later identified the pi-
lot as 53-year-old Michael Al-
len Shultz, and his wife as Susan
Shultz. Michael Shultz had driv-
en .down to Bradford County on
Saturday morning to work on his
planes, but did not return home as
expected on Sunday afternoon.

Walker tapped

as new UC

EM director

Telegraph Staff Writer

John R. Walker, the former as-
sistant emergency management
director for Union County, took
over as director on April 25 after
being vetted by a 5-0 vote of the
county commission.
The commission appointed
Walker as director at a special
meeting April 25, which had
been called for that purpose. He
had been appointed as interim di-
rector at the regular commission
meeting on April 18. The posi-
tion had then been advertised in-
ternally for five days, as required
by the county's policy.
The director of emergency
management for the county is
the person responsible for a lot
of "what ifs." Walker will have
to make plans for what the coun-
ty-and all of its agencies-will
do in the event of an emergency
situation that affects a significant
number of people.
What if a hurricane struck the
county, downed a large number
of power lines and damaged nu-
merous homes? What if several
tornadoes cut a swath through a
major residential area? What if a
wildfire destroyed a large num-
ber of local homes?
The EM director is the per-
son who is expected to have a
plan that details where those
newly homeless people will go,,
what they will eat, how soon the
power will b"e back on, how and
when the roads will be cleared-

as well as having the answers to
a vast number of other questions
that are going to be asked by a
large number of people in a time
of critical need.
The EM director needs to
make plans for anything that
"overwhelms" the emergency
services the county has on hand,
said Walker. "We have to have a
plan for how we are going to get
help for people if something ter-
rible happens," he said.
While Union County has al-
ways prided itself in taking care
of its own and its residents have
always been quick to help their
neighbors-it is still a small
county and a major disaster may
mean it will need assistance from
other areas, said Walker.
The EM department ensures
that assistance will be there by
negotiating "memorandums of
understanding" with other coun-
ties, with the state and with gov-
ernmental bodies in other states.
The memorandums of under-
standing are like pledges of the
various governmental bodies to
help their neighbors in times of
For example, if Union County
had a major brush fire that was
bigger than its firefighters could
deal with alone, then Bradford,
Columbia and Alachua coun-
ties would send equipment and
personnel to help deal with it-
thanks to the memorandums of
understanding crafted by the EM

ey could be used to correct.
Commissioner Wayne Smith

is involved trying to determine
the exact cause and approximate
time of the man's death.

Smith said that when the cul-

backs over the road, it becomes
a-safety issue. "I think it's haz-
ardous," he said. "That's a blind
curve right there. People won't
know the road is covered with
water until they're already in it."
Smith also asked for changes
to Southwest 44th Avenue. He
said the road was resurfaced two
years ago. When the project was
completed, he said, double cen-
terlines, painted sidelines and
reflectors all combined to result
in making the lanes seem more
"The road itself isn't any more

Walker has been with the
Union County EM department
since 2003. He started as the per-
son in charge of 911 mapping and
then became assistant EM direc-
tor. Prior to that, he served for six
years in the U.S. Army in mili-
tary intelligence and worked in
a variety of fields everything
from fishing charters to build-

as well.
Commissioner Ricky Jenkins
said there had been some con-
cerns voiced in the past regard-
ing putting a flea market at the
farmers market. "I'd like to see
some more on 'that," he said.
"There were some objections in
years past, but that could change

bleachers for the ball fields at the

Whitehead. said Walker has al-
ready developed a good working
relationship with .the other staff

The commission had previous-
ly discussed the possible need for
an administrative assistant for the
EM department, but Walker told
them April 25 that, due to budget
concerns, he would not be asking
for that position at this time. He
said there may be a need for tem-
porary office help in the event of
a major emergency, however.
"Be aware that if (an emergen-
cy) happens that takes a week or
a month to recover from, we will
definitely need some assistance
to help with completing the state
paperwork," he said.

Telegraph Editor
Sally Palmi, acting solid waste
director for Alachua County,
spent time recently trying to
ease the New River Solid Waste
Association's concerns about
recycling projects that would
divert additional waste from the
Alachua County has incorpo-
rated' the state's goal of recycling
75 percent of solid waste into its
comprehensive plan, but is actu-
ally well on its way to meeting
that goal, according to Palmi.
Alachua County has spent the
past 20 years educating the pub-
lic, regulating business practices
and providing opportunities to
recycle waste, so it's recycling
rate is already 43 percent.
"It's always been our inten-
tion to work toward maximizing
recovery of materials as much as
we can," Palmi said.
Still she acknowledged the
board's fears about any addition-
al loss of waste that could impact
operations and drive up disposal
costs. Lack of flow control hasn't
just diverted waste from New
River at times. That lack of con-
trol also keeps waste from flow-
ing through Alachua's transfer
facility, Falmi said.
"We recognize that in order to
really have a secure waste stream
for both of our systems, regula-
tory flow control is the way that
we need to go," she said.
Palmi .said the best way to
achieve that is to put a process
of resource recovery in place
that involves sorting garbage
and pulling out reusable materi-
als. Hence, the county's plan to
turn itstransfer station into a ma-
terials recovery facility that will
separate and process materials
for recycling.
"By separating those materi-
als, we can invoke a flow con-
trol ordinance that'giles us thd
management of the entire waste
stream of the county," Palmi
Feasibility studies have been
performed and three options for
converting the transfer station
were explored. The most likely to
be developed is the mid-cost so-
lution, using a mixture of mecha-
nization and hands-on sorting of
garbage coming into the transfer
facility. The estimated cost is
between $1.5 million and $2 mil-

addition, another facility for

A technical advisory commit-

ing the feasibility of organic
composting and will be used to
solicit alternative ideas, for the
use of materials recovered. Palmi
said that could be an opportunity
for Alachua to work with Ne\w
River's member counties on a
project that benefits them all.
"Although rulemaking has
been suspended in Tallahassee,
that doesn't mean that as coun-
ties we don't, to the best of our
abilities, account for our waste
stream and our recycling per-

UC Public Library looking forward to summer program

Animals galore
seen during
spring at library
The past few weeks at the
Union County Public Library
have been filled with animals-
both current species and extinct
ones-as children continue
to. attend the spring storytime
Over the past few weeks,
children have tracked down a
dinosaur and given him back his
bones,did the "Monkey Monkey,"
strummed on an old guitar, and
made artistic sandstone crafts.
This Thursday, April 21,
marks the conclusion of the
spring season at the library and
the beginning of a whole new
schedule of adventure with the
summer programs.
"One World, Many Stories,"
is the name of this summer's
.library program schedule and it
:promises some "international"
fun for young readers. The
summer sessions will be held
each Thursday morning at 10
a.m. from June 16 to Aug. 4
at the public library. For more
information, call 386-496-3432.

for the recycling project.
Palmi said the fee reduction
was necessary to convince the
private hauler to bring commer-
cial waste back to Alachua's
transfer station. It will also pro-
vide a window of opportunity for
Alachua to pursue the materials
recovery facility that will allow
it to put an actual flow control
ordinance in place.
Palmi said Alachua County's
new timeline is slower than what
the board saw before, and there
is no plan to divert huge amounts .
of waste away from the landfill.'
The immediate goal is to gain
flow control so all waste is com-
ing through the AlacAua transfer
facility to New River. Even when
materials recovery begins, the
maximum diversion of regular
recyclables like containers and
cardboard would be 10 percent.

"We recognize that we are try-
ing to divert waste through re-
cycling, but it shouldn't have a
huge impact on either one of our
systems as long as we have con-
trol of the entire waste stream,"
she said.
Organic recovery would focus
on the 12 percent of the waste
stream-mainly food waste-
that remains on the floor of the
transfer facility once everything
else has been hauled away. That
material is not coming to the
landfill anyway, but could poten-
tially be used in a compost facil-
ity, with soiled paper and card-
board that cannot be recycled to
generate gas as well as compost
for a hay or sod operation at Ala-
chua's closed landfill.
Palmi said Alachua is not
looking at source separating all

ideal but represents a paradigm
shift that communities may not.

LB Class of '61 asked to follow

up on research program

Fifty-one years after being
selected to take part in the Project
Talent study of American high
school students, the class of 1961
from Lake Butler High School is
being asked to participate once
In 1960, 400,000 students took
part in Project Talent, a study of
the aptitudes and abilities, hopes
and expectations of high school
students from across America.
The study was conducted by
the American Institutes for
Research (AIR) and the United
States Office of Education.
Now the -original Project Talent
participants, including Lake
Butler High School's class of
1961, are being asked to tell their
stories in a follow-up study being
planned by AIR.
"The Project Talent generation
is very important in the history
of the country," says Sabine
Horner, Project Talent's director
of outreach and communications.

"They came of age during an
era of great upheaval and they
transformed the United States
as we knew it. Project Talent
is an opportunity to share their
perspectives and experiences in a
meaningful way that can benefit
future generations."
Large studiesthat follow people
from adolescence to retirement
are both rare and extremely
valuable. They allow researchers
to make connections between
early .life experiences and later
life outcomes. New information
gained from a 50-year follow-
up study can help researchers
and policy makers understand
how family and educational
background impact the life
course, up to and including the
retirement process. Researchers
can also learn why certain people
stay healthier and happier and
are more able to enjoy their later
Members Lake Butler's class

of 1961 are being asked to con-
tact AIR to register their interest
and provide details of where they
can be contacted to receive fur-
ther information. Project Talent

Its goal is to increase the acre-
age of healthy longleaf pine
ecosystems in Florida by assist-
ing non-industrial private forest
(NIPF) landowners with the nec-
essary long-term investment re-
quired to establish and maintain
this valuable ecosystem.
NIPF lands located in the his-
torical natural range of longleaf
pine are eligible. All qualifying
applications received during the-
signup period will be evaluated
and ranked for funding approval.
"Longleaf pine forest once
covered some 70 million acres-
more than 60 percent of all the
uplands!-on the southeastern

coastal plain from southeast Vir-
ginia, to central Florida, to east
Texas. Today only about three
million acres remain, mostly due
to conversion to other land uses,"
said Jay Tucker, Union County
senior CFA forester.
"Longleaf pine forests are
highly valued for their resistance
to damage by insects, disease,
wildfire and storms and for their
yield of high quality wood prod-
ucts, biological diversity and
scenic beauty," he said.
"We often under estimate
where longleaf will grow," said"

pleted by Sardis Baptist Church's
Mission Projects Ministry(MPM)
are growing in number.
Bo Hersey, the group's leader,
arfd the MPM volunteers give all
the glory to the Lord.
The most recent wheelchair
ramp was constructed at the
home of Jan Harrison, across
:from Union County High School,
on April 16.
Dedi Stephens, Harrison's
:daughter, kept the MPM volun-
teers well supplied with water
and soft drinks, and she even
baked chocolate and cajarnel
Harrison said that, now that
she has a ramp, she will be able
to go outside and enjoy the sur-
roundings. Her front steps were
too difficult for her to negotiate
and she needed the ramp for safe-
ty reasons so she would not fall.-
Sardis Baptist Church has
been doing these local mission
projects as a ministry for about
16 months and has completed
five wheelchair ramps, repaired a
leaking roof, fixed the pipes un-
der one home and also did some
yard work.
The group's main goal is to

What's happening at the Capitol

Representative Janet Adkins
shares her thoughts and activities
during the seventh week of the
Legislative session.
Week seven of legislati% e session was a short one
due to the Easter holiday. My week at the Capitol
began with the drive to Tallahassee on Tuesday'
afternoon. The first order of business was to make
a trip to Sam's Club to get food supplies for the
Emma Love Hardee Elementary fourth grade field'
trip to the Capitol on Wednesday.
Wednesday was an exciting day at the Capitol. It
began with an 8 a.m. meeting of the Redistricting
Committee. This is a new cormmittee assignment
for me my eighth committee and I am
thrilled to have the opportunity to be'a part of this
process. There are several subcommittees, and the
full committee is chaired by the speaker designate,
Will Weatherford. I was fortunate to have been
selected to serve on the full committee.

The committee heard'presentations on legal issues
regarding redistricting and Florida's demographics
from various experts on the subject.
Every 10 years, the U.S. Constitution mandates
a census or headcountt" of everyone residing in
the United States. As many of you know, the U.S.
Census Bureau completed its work, and now this
census is available for redistricting.
These population totals determine each state's
apportionment of congressional representation.
Because of Florida's growth over the last 10 years,
we will gain two congressional seats for a total of
27. (New York lost two seats and will also have 27
congressional seats.)
The term reapportionmenti" refers to the task
of dividing the state's population by the number of
congressional, seats apportioned to the state. The
task 'of redistricting is the process of dividing the
population of the state by the number of seats in
each .chamber of the state legislature.

The principle of "One Person, One Vote" in
Reynolds v. Sims forbids major disparities in the
creation of congressional and state legislative
districts. These potential disparities are commonly
referred to ast the district's deviation from the
ideal population number. To determine the ideal
population number, Florida's total population of
18.,801,301 would be divided by 120 house districts,
40 state senate districts and 27. congressional
'In the last 10 years, the ideal population for each
congressional district has increased from 639,295
to 696,345; each state senate district.from-399,559
to 470,033; and each state house district from
1:33,186 to .156,678.
There- are two different federal constitutional
standards for deviation employed for analysis of
congressional districts and state legislative districts.
Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution requires
mathematical equality.
In Wesberry v. Sanders, the Supreme Court
held that congressional districts must be drawn so
that "as nearly as is practicable one man's vote in
a congressional election is ... worth as much as
another's." In contrast, courts have accepted up to
10 percent total deviation from the ideal population
for state legislative districts.
The committee heard about requirements of
the Voting Rights Act prohibiting any practice
or procedure, including certain, redistricting
practices, which impair the ability of a minority
community to elect candidates of choice on an
equal basis with non-minority
voters. We reviewed elements of
the U.S. Supreme court cases of
Thornburg v. Gingles and Bartlett
v. Strickland.
We learned about the five N atio
preclearance counties (Collier, ti
Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and
Monroe) that are covered"under
Section 5 of the Voting Rights Si
Act. These covered jurisdictions I
bear the burden of demonstrating. Highly
that the proposed voting change

For n

"does not have the purpose, and will not have the
effect, of denying or abridging the right to vote
on account of race or color or membership in a
language minority group."
It is clear that between the requirements of the
U.S. and State constitutions and the Voting Rights
Act, redistricting will be a significant undertaking.
All of this before 9:30 a.m.!
At 10 a.m., it was time for my final Education
Committee. We passed out five education bills,
including HB 7195 dealing with high-performing
charter schools.
About an hour into the committee meeting,
approximately 50 fourth-grade students, teachers,
and chaperones from Emma Love Hardee
Elementary School entered the committee room.
For the next half hour,' the students were able to
watch and hear both sides of the debate and witness
the roll call as members voted on the proposed
legislation before it headed to the floor. It was a
wonderful reminder of our purpose to ensure a
quality education for our students.
We concluded our committee meeting at 12:15
p.m., and I immediately headed to the Capitol's
22nd floor. Here, we served lunch to about 280
fourth-grade students, teachers, and chaperones. It
was a lively hour to say the least!
We then headed to the House chamber for a
mock legislative session. The students enjoyed
sitting at the member desks and debating a bill. The
bill they debated was an idea by a student to shorten
the school year. We are grateful to the House staff
and Clerk Bob Ward for his leadership and help in"
making this experience meaningful.
After lengthy debate and an amendment to the
bill, both the amendment and the bill were defeated
by the students.' It was clear after discussion that
the majority felt this proposal would, harm their
education and the'r ability to get a job. The kids
watched the board light up with red and green
lights as "members" voted. The prevailing side
was excited and jumped up and down as victory
was upon them. This is not too far from the reality
when the chamber is faced with contentious bills
headed for a vote.

It was a special treat for Speaker Dean Cannon
to join the students for questions. He even posed
with the children for a picture at the rostrum.
We also had a second group in the Senate
chambers at the same time. They debated a bill
to require school uniforms, and I understand that
measure was also defeated by the kids in the
It is important to note that when you step onto
the floor of the Senate or the House, this is a place
.where history is made and where the sovereignty
of c-ir great state rests in the seats of the members.
The importance of this part of the state Capitol
never escapes me when I walk into the chamber.
You never lose sight of the important work that is
upon you, or of
the weight of
to be diligent
and' fair when
exercising the
vote that is
entrusted to you
by the citizens.
At 3:45 p.m.,
it was time for
the full House of
to get to work

I _____

on the floor. There %ere 38 bills on the special
order calendar for second reading. We rolled 33 of
these bills o% er to third reading and voted on them.
One ver\ important bill that passed Wednesday'
was m\ HB 1263 dealing \% ith small trucking. This
bill will no"\ be sent in messages to the Senate.
HB1263 establishes a xorkgroup to look at
issues relating to small trucking businesses. It
provides that on or before October 1, 2011. the
work group is required to deliver to the governor,
the president of the Senate, and the speaker of the
House of Representatixes, a report concerning
rules and regulations affecting small trucking
firms. The report is required to contain legislative
recommendations related to:
Penalties assessed for idling trucks owned by
small trucking firms:
Development of a corporate tax credit related
to the costs of idling b\ trucks owned by small
trucking firms:
Theft of cargo or equipment from trucks owned
by small trucking firms, and criminal penalties
imposed for such crimes:
An exemption from rules imposed by DEP
restricting truck washing, for small trucking
Development of rules to be promulgated by
DOT regarding random inspection of trucks
owned by small trucking firms and prohibiting the
use of any "target list" to determine which trucks
are inspected; and
Improving access to DHSMV's offices that
provide International Registration Plan registration
and renewal services to motor carriers, whether
through increased use of technology or by other
After hearing bills relating to residential building
permits, waterquality, telecommunications, growth
management, controlled substances, election
ballots, and others, the House adjourned at 10:45
p.m. It was a long day!
I returned Thursday for three more hours on
the House floor. We had third reading (debate and
voting) on six bills. HB7213 names a portion of
S.R. 100 East in Union County as "Deputy Hal
P. Croft and Deputy Ronald Jackson Memorial
HB 1261 creates a process for handling legislative
ballot summaries that are invalidated by the courts.
Over the last 10 years, four amendments have been
removed from the ballot prior to an election based
on the court's finding of faulty ballot language.
The bill requires that if the ballot summary and
alternative ballot summaries are found defective
by the courts, the full text of the amendment must
be placed on the ballot. The bill does not alter the
manner in which the courts review ballot titles or
ballot summaries to determine accuracy.
HB1355 contains 'numerous changes to the
Florida Election Code, including allowing a request
for an absentee ballot to be good for two years. One
major change is the creation of the
Presidential Preference Primary

Date Selection Committee. The
committee will be made up of
10 members: three members
appointed by the governor, three
members by the '-louse speaker,
three members' appointed by
the Senate president, and the
secretary of state to serve as a
non-voting chair. The selection
committee must set a date for
Florida's Presidential Preference

Primary by Oct. 1,2011.
HB7129 limits the scope of government by
eliminating duplicative growth management
reviews that slow down the process. Specifically,
the bill focuses the state role on protecting state
resources and facilities and ensures that the,state
and local governments work as partners to protect
these interests.
In terms of state government's role in regulating
local government comprehensive planning and
land use, Florida has one of the most heavily
top-down approaches of any state in the nation.
HB7129 substantially modernizes Florida's growth
management laws by providing local governments
with greater local control over planning decisions
that affect their communities. The bill preserves the
minimum standards for Florida's comprehensive
growth-management system and preserves the
opportunities in current law for public participation
in the local planning process.
HB7095 attempts to deal with the growing
problem of prescription drug abuse. Florida
has five percent of our nation's population, yet
Florida doctors alone dispense 85 percent of
the Oxycodone dispensed in the entire country.
Nearly half of all doctors in the country who buy
and dispense methadone are located in Florida,
and they purchase more than 93 percent of all
the methadone sold to practitioners in the entire
According to a report by the Florida Medical
Examiners Commission, lethal amounts of
prescription drugs are found in deceased people
more often than illicit drugs, and death from
prescription drugs continue to rise.
In 2009, there were 1,157 deaths in Florida
related to prescription drugs this amounts to six
deaths each day. In 2010, this number had risen
to seven deaths a day for a total of 1,268 deaths.
The percent of population in northeast Florida
using prescription pain relievers for nonmedical
purposes in the past year ranged between 5.49 to
6.16 percent.
HB7095 bans practitioners from dispensing
schedule II and III controlled substances
and combats the fraudulent use and abuse of
practitioners' prescribing authority. It does not
repeal Florida's Prescription Drug Monitoring
Program. HB7095 passed the House with a vote
of 116 to 1..

The House completed its work at 5:45 p.m. and
adjourned for the Easter weekend. After my usual
detour to get doughnuts to take home, I began my
drive home. My weekly letter is just a small glimpse'
of what happens in Tallahassee. For information
on other legislation or to see how members voted,

thank you for allowing me to serve you.

sport that utilized terms such
as "ruck" and "scrum," and
where instead of scoring six
points for a touchdown, five
points were awarded for a
"try," where the ball is touched
down in the opposing team's
in-goal area. Two points are
awarded for a' successful
conversion, or kick through the
goal posts, as opposed to one
point in football.
Also, a score is reason to
celebrate, but you won't find
any of the showboating or
excessive exuberation
displayed in football.
"If you do that and don't
touch the t-all down, you're
going to get hurt and stepped
on," Johnson said. "It's a
gentlemen's game.",
Being what's known as a
"gentleman's game," rugby
matches are followed by
soqials made up of both teams.
No matter what happened on
the pitch-the rugby field-or
hoyv physicahlthe play was, all
is ;forgotten once the final
whistle blows. Players from
the opposing teams mingle
with one another, laugh and
have a good time.
'.'That is one concept of the
gaine it took me a while to
get," Johnson said.
Johnson said if he's 'on the
receiving end of a punch or an
elbow, or gets stepped on,
during a game, his mindset is
to get even. His teammates
have told him to put his hard
feelings aside after the match.
If he wants to hold onto the'
memory of what an opposing
player did to him during a
match, he was told to wait
until the next time they played
eadh other to try to get even
during a match.
Have no doubt, a reason to
"get even" will arise.
',There's only one ref on the
field," "Johnson said. "You're
constantly getting punched in
the mouth. If you're not a
pui}ch thrower, you're going to
be abused out there. You have
to defend yourself at all
Johnson talked of the
concussion he received late in
one match. He and an
opposing player had .been
going, at it throughout the
match, with the opponent at
one. point "clearing" Johnson
out by grabbing his neck.
"' gave him a few elbows
and said, 'Don't touch my
neck again,'" Johnson said.
."Later in the match, he put a
shoulder on the top of my
head. It was on purpose."
During a match in
Brunswick, Ga., Johnson
suffered a cut on the top,of his
head. He left the match for
approximately 10 n..nutes as
an attempt was made to get his
bleeding under control. His
head was bandaged, and his
teammates had to force his
mouthpiece in since he was
. wrapped so tight from the top
'of hiis head to underneath his
He 'played another 20
minutes before he began
bleeding through the bandages.
"I drove back from
Brdlnswick with a bloody towel
on my head," said Johnson,
who later had the cut stapled
Johnson doesn't seem. to
mind the physical nature of
rugby. The relentless action
during two 40-minute halves,
though, is another story. After
his first match, Johnson
discovered his endurance level
was something he was going to
have to improve.
"I was so tired," Johnson
said. "I couldn't feel my legs.
My back was so sore. I was
like, 'Could somebody just cut
my back off and give mne a
new one?' I used to think I was
tired after football."

Johnson throws the ball

Johnson was a lineman in
football. For the Gainesville
Rugby Club, he is the tight
head prop, which is one of
eight forwards on a team.
Forwards, which have names
such as prop', hooker, lock and
flanker, tend to be the bigger,
stronger players on a team.
Their job is to win possession
of the ball.
The remaining seven players
'6in"the pitcl.are backs, which,
like the forwards, go by a
variety of names.
Each player wears the
number that corresponds with
his position. Tight head props
wear the number three, so that
is Johnson's jersey number.

tight head prop was prior to
playing rugby, but in a little
less than a year, he said he has
learned the basics of the game,
though he added, "You learn
something new every game."
What Johnson has learned in
a relatively short amount of
time has impressed others. He
said he has had referees ask
him how long he's been
playing. When he's told them,
he's had them respond, "Wow,
you're going to be very good
one day."
It's a good feeling. As much
as he loves.football, Johnson
admitted he was never that
good of a player in high
school. To find a sport he
stands out in has been
"I've never made that kind
9f impact, so it's a first-time
experience for me," he said.
Following one of his rugby
matches, Johnson was
approached by a. man who
represented a semi-
professional football team. The
man presented Johnson with a
business card.
Before his rugby-playing
days, Johnson said he
wvould've "flipped out" if
someone from a football team
was interested in him.
Things are different now.
"When he handed me the'
card," Johnson said, "I was
like, 'OK, cool,' because now
I've found a sport I'm good at,
that I'm going to get better at
and that I love."

a 10-2 win over fourth seed
Baker Count, in the
quarterfinals of the District 4-
3A tournament on April 25 in
R\ an Latner and Evaq
Harvey--the top two batters in
the order-each went 3-for-5.
while Chase Julius-the
lineup's third batter-went 3-
for-3 with three RBI. Julius'
two-run double, along with
Robbie Davis' three-run
homer, put the fifth seed
Indians on top for good after
an early 2-0 deficit.
Baker County's Ethan
Wilkerson hit a home run to
put the Wildcats up 2-0 in the
top of the first. It was one of
two hits in the inning off of
Keystone pitcher Jeff
Stadnicki, but Stadnicki gave
up three hits the rest of the
way. He gave up just two
walks and struck out five to
improve his record to 10-2.
.Tyler Jolley led off the top
of the second for Keystone by
drawing a walk. Brantley Lott
then singled before Davis
stepped to the plate and drove
a pitch over the fence to put
the Indians up 3-2. With two
outs, Latner beat out a ground
ball to short, while Harvey hit
the first of his two doubles.
Julius followed with a double

single into left field, which
was followed by a walk given
up to Tyler Yowell. A fly ball
to center field gave Bradford
